Early Wednesday morning, after only being at the hospital for about 30 minutes, baby Eliza joined our family. She is perfect and we are all so in love.
Every little detail of her delivery was exactly what I'd hoped for. My favorite midwife met us at the hospital and when it came time to "catch" the baby, she had my hubby glove up and deliver this little girl. The birth was such a blessing, especially after her being breech until 37 weeks. I could feel God's hand helping us through the entire process and I can't wait until I have the time to sit down and write out her entire birth story.
For now, we are enjoying lots of quiet family time at home. I feel like I'm practically nursing 24/7 but it's perfectly fine because I know how quickly these newborn days pass. While she's this small, I want to snuggle her all day, breath in that newborn smell and just enjoy this fleeting tiny stage.
Her hair is mostly brown with a red'ish sort of tint.
Inspecting her with the kids.
He is so crazy about her.
Over the next few days or weeks, I'll most likely be posting a little less than normal. For now, I'll be enjoying my family and adjusting to having a new little one.
My hands are full and thankful.
